When Jesus is asked, “Which is the great commandment”, there was a simple answer: “Love God and Love Others”. That’s it. James 2.8 says: If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing WELL. So, basically, as followers of Christ, we are to “LOVE WELL”. As Grace of Christ Church, we are to LOVE WELL. If we can figure out how to Love God and Love Others, we are doing WELL. We are to love God well. We are to love our brothers and sisters in Christ well. We are to love our own self well. We are to love our “neighbors” well. We are to love our enemies well. We are to love strangers well. Do you get it? Do you see what Jesus is saying?
I know, there is so much more to being a Christ. It’s not all about love. Or, is it? If we can LOVE WELL, everything else might actually fall in place. It is not always easy to LOVE WELL. It takes time, energy, sometimes finances, to LOVE WELL.
The leaders of Grace of Christ have been exploring what it means to LOVE WELL. God is revealing to us where this Body of Christ is loving well, but also places where we need to pay more attention to loving well. And, as I mentioned last week, it begins with DROPS OF GRACE. So, who is God calling you to LOVE WELL? Where is God calling you to LOVE WELL? How are you going to LOVE God Well this morning?
